Corbyn serves food at UK gurdwara

Tuesday, 21/05/2019

LONDON: Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn donned a ‘patka’ and served food during ‘langar’ at the Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara in Southall on Sunday as part of campaigning for the May 23 elections to the European Parliament, and reiterated promises to the Sikh community.

Accompanied by shadow chancellor John McDonnell, Ealing Southall MP Virendra Sharma, Slough MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi and several others, Corbyn promised that if he is elected to power, his government would formally apologise for the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre.


An image of Corbyn at the gurdwara occupied most of the front page of The Guardian on Monday, with the title ‘Day of spirituality and hard-nosed politics’.

Sharma told the gathering, “May 23 is the day when you decide to leave or stay in the European Union. I am totally in favour of remaining in the EU because that is best for the UK economy. Labour can play a major part in consolidating the Remain position.”

Corbyn also visited the Regents Park mosque during the day, following the practice in recent elections of leading British politicians visiting Hindu temples, gurdwaras and mosques to woo the increasingly influential vote of the British Asian community.
